Riyadh – Mubasher: Al Abdullatif Industrial Investment Company on Monday said its profits soared 134.44% in the third quarter of 2017, compared to the year-ago period.

The Tadawul-listed firm attributed the rise in its year-on-year net profits to not registering losses in its investments, growth in other revenues, and decrease in financing expenses.
